Turkey has been preparing to undertake the term presidency of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia (CICA).

Turkish Foreign Ministry Deputy Undersecretary Unal Cevikoz told reporters that Turkey would take over the presidency from Kazakhstan in June 2010. The organization which was initiated by Kazakhstan would be chaired by another country for the first time, he said.

CICA Member States include Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, China, Egypt, India, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Palestine, South Korea, Russia, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Uzbekistan.
